TEKKEN 7 - Glossary

If you are unsure of any terms, I have written a glossary which hopefully includes it and will explain it for you.


  • Backdash Cancel (BDC) - is basically cancelling your backdash with db to cut the recovery period and allowing you to perform another action. This is done via (b,b db~b, b, db~b b….). This is a variant of the BDC called the Korean Backdash Cancel (KBC). BDC is good for creating space between yourself at the opponent quickly and to escape mixup situations. There are a few ways to perform a BDC but this is the preferred one as it works with backsway characters such as Bryan, Paul and Nina.

  • BT = Backturned, it’s basically just your character putting their back towards the opponent. Some characters have a unique movelist out of BT such as Chloe, Feng, MRaven, Xiaoyu

  • Crush - a property of a move where it is designed to go cleanly through a move depending on high or low crush property.

  • High Crush - a move that’s designed to be "invincible” to high moves.

  • Homing move - a move that is designed to shut down sidestepping.

  • Hopkick - a standard low crush launcher that most characters have. Usually i15 and done by either uf3 or uf4.

  • Launcher - a combo starter, usually the fastest launcher is i15 for most chars.

  • Low Crush - like high crush moves, low crush moves just simply hops over lows.

  • FC - Full Crouch , a state where the character is in crouching and there is an exclusive moveset in this state.

  • Mishima - when people refer to Mishimas in-game, they are referring to the playstyle rather than the surname. So this includes Heihachi, Kazuya and Devil Jin (even though Jin is a Kazama by name). In TTT2, Angel was considered a Mishima under this term. This comes with shared tools such as EWGF, Hellsweep and wavedashing.

  • Rage - a state a character is in with 25% or less health remaining. It gives your character a very slight damage increase and access to Rage Art and Rage Drive. It’s indicated by a red aura around the character and red glowing lifebar.

  • Rage Art - Basically Tekken 7’s version of a super. Fully armoured but still absorbs damage so can still get KO’ed if absorbed move kills. Uses up your rage and every chars RA is different in terms of speed.

  • Rage Drive - another option you can spend your rage on. It’s basically a juiced up version of an existing move and it’s unique per character on how good it is and it’s usage.

  • Range 0/1/2/3 etc. - Range 0 is point blank, Range 1 is a single backdash away. Range 2 = 2 backdashes etc

  • Power Crush - an armoured move available for all chars. What the actual move is, is unique to the character.

  • Screw attack - a move that causes them to spin and fly away in a juggle allowing for enders. This replaces the bound from T6/TTT2 and is usually given as s! in combo notations. You may also see tailspin which is the older name for it.

  • Seeable - means it’s reactable, usually referred to with lows.

  • SS - sidestep notation so a SS1 move would be Sidestep + 1

  • SSL - Sidestep left - performed by tapping up on P1 side and down on P2 side.

  • SSR - Sidestep right - performed by tapping down on P1 side and up on P2 side.

  • SWL - Sidewalk left - basically a longer but more vulnerable step, done by tapping for SSL then holding down the button

  • SWR - Sidewalk right - same as SSR but tapping then holding down the button..

  • WS - While Standing, a state where the character transitions from crouching to standing, there is an exclusive moveset in this state.

  • WS Punishment - When I refer to this, it’s when you block a move from crouching (lows) or blocking a move that leaves you in crouch, it’s your punishment from crouching essentially.

  • WR - While Running, a state where the character is considered running.

  • Wall Carry - a combo that is designed around taking your opponent to the wall.

  • Wallsplat - a move designed to splat the opponent vs the wall for a followup combo.
